The SFF Week in Links 12/21/19: A Quiet Place 2, Children of Virtue and Vengeance, My Hero Academia

Welcome to the Week in Links, a roundup of the latest articles for fantasy, sci-fi and horror readers and writers.

A Quiet Place 2 teaser dropped. Don’t know what I feel about that. A Quiet Place was a good standalone movie. It ended on a cliffhanger but it still felt finished for me. I loved that movie but I don’t think we need another one.

Children of Vice and Virtue by Tomi Adeyemi is finally out. It a fantasy book about magical characters set in a fictional African country. I am all for that. It’s book 2 of the Legacy of Orïsha series. But, I definitely don’t have the money to buy that. I may be downloading it on Audible. I really want that hardback, though.

My feed was all about The Witcher series on Netflix. I’ve read The Last Wish. I loved that book but I’m not that excited about the TV series. I don’t know if I’ll be watching it. I think I’m just like “Great, another European fantasy novel with an all-white cast.” Couldn’t they have found a more diverse fantasy book to adapt? The show’s gotten some mixed reviews. It seems like it’s watchable.

Speaking of diversity… Did you see that Tenet trailer? I looks like a trippy action movie with a little something extra, maybe sci-fi, with a black male lead. Yes, please!
